    Laminating Hints and Tips

    1. Laminating shapes and sizes
    When laminating irregular shapes:
    - Make sure that the sealed edge of the laminate enters the machine first
    - Ensure content is as close as possible to that sealed edge.
    - If laminating multiple irregular shapes, place them all as close together as possible near the sealed edge.

    2. Always laminate closed end first
    Feeding work in ‘open end’ first is the number one cause of laminating jams. Always ensure that the closed side enters the machine first to significantly reduce hold ups.

    3. Laminating maintenance
    Run a cardboard laminator cleaning sheet (without laminating pouch) through your machine regularly. This helps to remove adhesive blockages which can appear over time and may contribute to jams.

    4. Don’t laminate an empty pouch
    Never laminate a pouch without content as it may result in malfunction or jamming.

    How to choose the correct laminator:
    No matter which style you choose, the basic three questions apply when choosing the right model

     1.    What size document are you laminating?
    The first consideration is content. What size laminate do you need? All laminators do not cover every format, and while other aspects are important, content size is crucial.

    2.    What laminate thickness?
    Pouches (also known as laminating pockets) are the most recognised accessories. Measured in microns – the higher the micron the thicker the laminate.
    Ranging from 75 – 250 microns, and, as a general rule, the more the document is handled the thicker the laminate should be.

    Top tip:

    Pouches are often depicted as ‘2x’, followed by the micron thickness.
    E.g. 2x125 micron - The ‘2x’ is simply to indicate each separate side of the pouch, rather than representing two individual pouches.

    3.   How many users and how often?
    The number of users has a significant impact on choice, and, as we know, those laminating for business have different priorities to the home user. Using a laminator more frequently than what it was designed for will burn the motor out quicker.

    Heavy use - Premium models designed to focus on high volume for specialised business
    Regular use - Mid range models perfect for average to large busines
    Moderate use - Entry-level laminators, ideal for homes, home offices and start-up business

    I used this the Laminator once to laminate 11 A4 pages and it worked perfectly.
    The next time I tried to use it, it did not get hot - something went wrong after only one use? I send it back as it is still under guarantee.

    Good product for the price paid

    Zakarieya, South Africa. 8 February 2017

    Very good product. First one broke after several months, but takealot, like always sorted it out. Very good product and works well.

    Vanessa, South Africa. 4 March 2015

    Good product

    Rosalind, South Africa. 28 April 2015

    The heat settings are not marked for most temperatures, just a couple of main temperature lines on the dial were marked so I had to guess the setting recommended on the plastic pockets box. Other than that it is easy to use.

    Liezl, South Africa. 10 February 2016

    Good quality for a very good price.Second time I have purchased the exact same product.No regrets.

    Richard, South Africa. 9 November 2015

    Like all tech of this sort, you need to mess around with it a bit to get comfortable with it. If you are going to put the pouches in the wrong way round - well you can expect problems. The heat settings - while simple can be figured out as the Pouches usually say what heat is required or you can guess by the thickness. I have laminated A4 photos, A4 80grm paper and A4 160grm paper. I bought an A3 Canon printer - also from Takealot and used that to print A3 Photos, A3 80grm and 160grm paper - the latter for school projects where cut-outs (from magazines or print outs 80grm from my printer) were stuck with a spot of Pritt onto the (160grm)card then the whole lot laminated. Since twice now liquids have been spilt on them (after lamination)in the early morning pre-school rush, this was pretty worthy investment for me just in the sheer pre-empted drama. I have also made business card examples, printed on 160grm paper, laminated a guillotined to size - they looked remarkably professional and I was able to get my concept across (tip - don't use 80grm paper). I have also printed and laminated A3 photos which I have stuck up on my walls (most inkjet printed photos fade if not sealed) and the effect is fabulous!

    We work this thing to death,
    its holding up, but the anti jam starting to jump alot more now, we put card stock that is too tick for it so that's understandable.
    When you run it the fist time it will smell like something is burning, so do it with an open window.

    Allan, South Africa. 18 May 2016

    Great looking laminator, heating time was ok, pressure on the pouches is good, nice smooth laminating job on the few sheets we did. Highly recommended

    Craig, South Africa. 27 February 2015

    Ok So this is the trick to stop jamming. Please take note.

    When you insert an A3 sheet for laminating, make sure that the leading edge of the pouch has paper strip that covers the full width of the A3 sheet. It does not need to be a long strip - but I needs to cover the width.

    So in other words if you for example are placing a number of small cards in the A3 pouch, with spaces between the edges of the cards, on the leading edge, cut and place a long strip (+/-3cm wide 29 cm long)- the width of the pouch and place the cards behind this strip.

    - --- -
    - --- -
    - A3 --- -
    - Pouch --- - Leading Edge going through the laminator first.

    \ /

    Strip of paper across the leading edge

    If there are gaps on the leading edge, i.e. there is paper and then gaps between paper objects, then the leading edge shrinks more in these gaps causing the leading edge to crumple - which then causes a jam.

    Great machine.

    Have fun laminating.

    Deirdre, South Africa. 23 March 2015
